Writing for football.london and backing up reports made through the media, reliable correspondent Alasdair Gold has stated that Tottenham Hotspur and chairman Daniel Levy hold an interest in Brighton manager Graham Potter.
Gold backs reports of Tottenham interest in Potter
Indeed, the reporter insisted that Potter is on Spurs’ growing list of managerial candidates to replace the recently-sacked Jose Mourinho, alongside Julian Nagelsmann, Brendan Rodgers, Erik ten Hag and Massimiliano Allegri.
Potter, who has been called a ‘genius’ by one unnamed Swansea City player who worked under him (The Athletic), is apparently earning a number of admiring glances from Premier League clubs for his work at the Amex Stadium.
This includes Tottenham, and Gold said there is a ‘growing belief’ that the 45-year-old can transfer his methods to a larger club with little adaptability needed. The Daily Mail recently reported that Potter could emerge as a managerial target, with Gold now backing those reports in his own update.
Transfer Tavern take
As well as being called a genius, the former Ostersund gaffer has been hailed as an ‘excellent manager’ by esteemed members of the press for his tenure on the English south coast (Miguel Delaney).
Operating on a relatively small budget for Premier League level, Potter has also earned praise from Manchester City counterpart Pep Guardiola as ‘the best English manager right now‘, known for playing an attractive brand of football.
For these reasons, we also believe he is an attractive outside candidate for the Tottenham job, even if Spurs are rightfully tipped to primarily target Nagelsmann.
